I love your sand hill crane carvings.  We see them all the time down here in Florida.  Do you have them up there?

I was over the Beartooth last summer on my motorcycle. My daughter was working in Yellowstone and I took a solo trip to see her for a few days. Out over Bighorns, back over Beartooth. Nice ride. Everyone should experience the Beartooth on a motorcycle before they die! 

You are probably thinking of Virginia's Mexican Restaurant. She's no longer there. Yes, it was the best. Spoiled me. I compare every one to her food and never have found one to compare. There's another Mexican place there now. Nice people, good food, but not Virginia's. There's a pretty good one in Sinclair, though.

I have been doing pottery pretty much full time for awhile. Been out of work since July 2012, so have been spending a lot of time working on my pottery skills to see if I can make it pay some of my diesel fuel expenses during retirement. No classes, just YouTube and a lot of practice. I'll have to taper off a bit this spring when the snow melts. Too many projects have been neglected.

Yes, I'm new to this site, and am not familiar with it, either. Your message came in my email, but it took me awhile to find it on the site.

I was looking at photos people had posted and your comments about Elk Mountain and Lander caught my eye. 

No, I have not posted any of my work on this site. I'm relatively new to pottery. Been teaching myself for a couple years. I have a few pieces for sale on Etsy... http://moosiboupottery.etsy.com. Mostly, I'm testing the waters to see if I can fund some of my retirement with pottery. 

I'm in Minnesota, but grew up in Baggs. I've known many Johnson's from Elk Mountain area. Have known Bob, Peg, Jody, John and Jerry most of my life. Jerry is my best friend; he was best man in my wedding.  I didn't know their ranch was ever considered a "buffalo" ranch. I knew they had a few back about 10 or 15 years ago which didn't work out well. If I recall, Peter Tarriot (sp?) had a lot of buffalo on his place.
